start to the second obama administration, and it featured presidential appeals to extend prosperity and full freedoms to all americans. as the sun rose over the nation's capital on this monday hundreds of thousands of people began descending on the national mall to witness the occasion. officials estimated 500-700,000 attendees. that was far fewer than four years ago when nearly two million turned out. but today's crowd gave no hint of diminished enthusiasm for the 44th president after a first term that saw bruising battles over health care, financial reform, deficits and spending and more. the man they came to see began his day with a morning prayer service at st. john's episcopal, near the white house and often called the church of the presidents. he was joined by first lady michelle obama and their daughters malia and sasha as well as vice president biden, his wife jill and members of their family. afterward at the white house, they hosted a bipartisan group of congressional leaders for coffee and then the president began the drive down pennsylvania avenue. all the while lawmaker
perspective who wouldn't want to be here? but more importantly for me, the whole of the obama administration is everything that i hold dear >> suarez: margaret came up with her family from north carolina. for her a second inauguration for the first black president was no less exciting, no less worthy of celebration than the first one. >> i'm 69 years old. i never thought i would live to see a black president. a black family. i really didn't. i think it's beautiful. it is really history. it's martin luther king's birthday. things that he even talked about and dreamed of, it is happening. people of all races are coming together, praying together, worshipping together, going to school and work together. there's a problem but if we all work together, we can, you know,... it will be beautiful >> suarez: it's very hard to be a short person in a very large crowd. you guys know that already, right? this family drove all day yesterday from chattanooga, tennessee, to reach the mall early. charles bass told meal he could not afford to miss another obama swearing-in >> again. we actually missed the firs
's support to be rallied to achieve? >> i think ten years ago, even in the beginning of the obama administration, i think once he was elected, we all thought progressive president, good things are going to happen. then, mitch mcconnell and john boehner came and said stop. i think people just thought that will happen because we elected him. we learned that. the president learned it. i think msnbc learned it and congress and the public most importantly learned it. that this just doesn't happen because of an election. it happens because of an election and then it means going online, it means doing rallies, it means educating your neighbors at church and the workplace and in school. >> now, you're using the word takers in this speech, i mean going right after the right and a reminder of people what the election was about. i looked right across at paul ryan when he said it. i mean, given the republicans parties and their positions right now, can he get this agenda done? >> i think republicans sometimes look to the next election, too. and when they think about how the demographics are c
attacks blocked a main road linking the targeted town with the capital. the obama administration meanwhile reportedly has decided to exclude cia drone strikes in pakistan from new legal oversight for targeted killings overseas. the washington post reports counter-terrorism adviser and cia-nominee john brennan has signed off on a plan to exempt the drone attacks in pakistan from a list of operations that would be covered under newly enacted rules. areas covered in the so-called play book include the process for adding names to kill lists, the principles for killing u.s. citizens abroad, and the command chain for authorizing cia or u.s. military strikes outside war zones. the exemption of drone strikes in pakistan would allow the cia to continue carrying them without -- tearing them without a legal framework for a to two years. the hostage standoff in a jury of his ended in the deaths of dozens of people, including up to 48 of the captured workers. algerian forces say they recovered at least 25 bodies after storming the militant held gas complex saturday, bringing the confirmed death toll to

me. the. >> pelley: what can president obama do for the states in a second administration? >> i think the smooth imlimit station of the affordable care act, so-called obamacare, which is off to a very good start and it's quite familiar to us in massachusetts because it's modeled on what we've had since 2006 but i think it's a big list for a lot of states and i think the partnership that h.h.s. has shown already with the states and the flexibility has been enormously important. beyond that, i think a growth agenda which is about investing in our future is enormously important to everything and every citizen. >> schieffer: governor, if you were to put a headline on the president's speech today, what would be the headline? what's the hook? >> i think i'd say "new resolve." i think what we'll see in the second term is a fresh resolve from this president. a dorplgs continue to try to pull us together. to ask people to turn to each other rather than on each other. to be very, very specific about the big lifts we have to do in gun safety, in immigration reform and, above all, in what we have
of power, the transferns of power from the first term administration of president barack obama to his second term administration. the president was officially sworn in by chief justice john roberts yesterday at the blue room at the white house as the first lady and the obama daughters looked on. but in the little less than two hours the president will affirm that oath before a much larger crowd with 100% more pomp and an equal proportion of circumstance. we have a stellar group of guests joining us throughout the day. honestly, to cut to the chase, it is pretty much everybody you know from msnbc. plus, visits with some members of the obama administration, folks from congress, we'll have live reports from the capitol and all along the parade route. and who knows what surprises along the way. it will be a fun day. reverend al sharpton and chris hayes are joining us onset as the day goes along. alongside me are melissa maris perry, ed schultz and the one and only chris matthews. mr. matthews, this is, i think of this as chris christmas. >> i think of the alternative it could be today. jo
. and i've been speaking to some people very close to the obama administration, who played a big part in his foreign policy team and i think they realize big challenges are coming, particularly in the middle east. >> and what's coming is the state of the union which is the president's next chance to do a deeper dive and get granular, but fate has a funny way. >> and things are a little bit out of his control. i don't know what he would say in the -- in the state of the union that's very different from what he said here. he can outline principles which are we support democracy. but if you're dealing with a region that is collapsing, state implosion in parts of the middle east, renewed and revised tribalism and conflicts, i don't know how defending a general principle of supporting democracy is going to contain the challenges in a very big region of the world. >> in a way, david, this mirrors the conference you had yesterday on "meet the press." it's kind of the changing world, the unanticipatables, the algerias that we did not know were out there a week ago. >> and this question too th
the conversation, here are the numbers to call -- host: we're looking at promises made in the obama administration. what counts as a promise kept? what counts as a promise broken? guest: we were inventing a new form of journalism. the beauty of the obameter is you can look things up by subject, by reading. a lot of critics like to focus on the things that we call promises broken. we had to define what was a promise kept and what was a promise broken. how did we define a promise? we defined it promised as a guarantee of prospective action that was verifiable, then we read it typically into one of two ratings. in the work that there was some sort of progress toward fulfilling or stalled if there was a lack of progress. at a point that we felt like we could judge completion, with an decided whether it was kept were broken. kept is pretty much you hear it, the promise has been substantially or completely fulfilled, broken, not fulfilled pretty trickier ones are compromise, to where there has been some progress, where there has been a partial achievement of the goal. ultimately these are judgment calls
, further conversation of the next four years of the obama administration two. we continue this evening with a conversation about the presidency of barack obama on the occasion of his second inauguration this time four years ago the world watched as the first african american was sworn in. it was an historic day. mr. obama came to the president in the midst of a global financial crisis and two wars. he has had to reshape america's role in the world, the boldness of his accomplishments-- health care reform-- has been divisive. in his first inaugural speech president obama promised a new vision for a troubled country. >> today i say to you that the challenges we face are real they are serious and they are many. they will not be met easily or in a short span of time but know this, america, they will be met! (cheers and applause) >> rose: four years later much work remains on major issues from climate change to immigration reform to the debate about taxes and spending and the most recent focus on gun control joining me to assess barack obama is a group of distinguished scholars and historia
a chance to talk about this. the obama administration has now geared all of the volunteers to a new organization called organizing for action. and michelle obama was the first person to make a message for organizing for action. over the weekend, gave a very strong pitch for getting america involved in passing this agenda. again, going over the head of congress and making sure that americans have a to do list as well in terms of persuading congress to get these pieces and policy done. >> john: david shuster who is not freezing because it is an unseasonably warm day. david, how is it down there for you in the crowd? are people getting hopped up to a fevered pitch now that the big guns are starting to roll out? >> i think people are excited. we've got all of the flags. crowd is back to about 12th street. certainly filling up. one thing i wanted to point out as you look at the amazing pictures from inside the capitol, the obama campaign, some of the remnants of the obama campaign, the board of directors helping to put together the inauguration. one of the things they recognize is that y
also looked at policies and what has been the effort on the part of the obama administration over the last four years to address health care, the economic situation, some of the other issues that are important to the country as a whole. guest: the importance of bringing kids that age and even little ones who did not speak, my mother took me when i was four years old to see senator john f. kennedy come to our home town of louisville, kentucky, and do a campaign rally. we were roman catholics alike and understand when it is important to us as a family or individual, my mother wanted us to be there. she got there early and was in front of the podium to see the senator. when he became president, i know how many full that was for her. politicalbecame a science is probably because of it. -- and i became a political scientist because of it. guest: i have had to do presentations. even though my child won't remember, when he is older, i will show that to him. it is historic to go for the white house and be around the president but certainly, in the history making moment of an african ameri
's transpired in the last year of the campaign, realities of the obama administration taking its campaign organization that raised a billion.one dollars in the last four years, now being transformed into an operation to advance the obama agenda, means republicans will play nice today they'll maturity the president today and ready to do battle tomorrow. we'll send it back to new york under a beautiful inaugural sunrise. >> gretchen: all right. exactly what's going to happen. carl cameron, thank you so much. we can thank brian for you being first. >> brian: right. >> gretchen: let's go to the number two guy, doug mckelway who is sometimes number one. thousands of people joined the president and vice president as they make their way from the capitol to the white house. this is all part of the parade, right, doug? >> sure is, gretchen. i wish you guys had come to me about a half hour earlier because we had the most spectacular sunrise. we're facing east along the pennsylvania avenue, facing toward the capitol and the sun came up directly behind the capitol. we are situated here at freedom pla
that in an inaugural address? >> it's a little bit surprising, but given his history, the obama administration's history with the repeal of don't ask, don't tell and also his revolution of gay marriage, it's not that surprising. >> what about you, greg? you were surprised he specifically mentioned stonewall. >> i was surprised that he mentioned stonewall because it's not something you hear when they talk about civil rights, especially from a president, so that really struck me when he said that. >> what do you think it does for gay people not only in this country but around the world? >> i hope it pushes us forward and makes us equal with everyone else, included with everyone else in the country. >> do you feel an additional sense of pride having heard the president mention that today? >> yes, i do. i really do. it makes me feel good to be an american right now and makes me think things will be better in the future. >> thanks pho boto both of you, thanks to the students from kentucky who stood around and waite waited. for you, it was really a speech about better equality? >> i think speeches a
biden pledged that the obama administration would make sure that future infrastructure investments are more targeted to local areas. in november, last year, the vice president hosted our leadership in the white house to discuss the fiscal cliff and the concerns of mayors regarding both investment programs and tax-exempt financing. issueer there's a major that demands attention, again and again and again, vice president joe biden has shown the leadership and courage needed to help move our nation in the right direction. and that is why i was certainly heartened when president obama asked vice president biden to lead a special task force to develop responses to the tragedy not only at sandy hook elementary school, but the daily tragedies we see all across america. the nation's mayors and vice president biden have stood together for many, many years in support of public safety. after all, it was then-senator joe biden who championed the crime bill, which established the cops program and included the ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, which congress unfortunately, all
of that effort, and we will be. >> and what is the united states government, the obama administration willing to do to be part of that effort of the french invasion of mali? >> well, you know, it's important to see an international effort. there are european countries that will be helping on training and other steps. and the united states is helping as well. we're helping on airlift and intelligence support. we'll look at other ways to try to provide assistance, as well as training. this has to be an international effort, because frankly, al-queda is an international threat. the best way to handle this now is to have all of these countries working together to do everything we can to stop al-queda. >> mr. secretary, you do not imagine u.s. fighting forces being involved in mali alongside the french at this point? >> no, i don't see troops on the ground. but i do see the kind of assistance that will help the french and ultimately help the african nation go into mali and really provide more permanent security there. >> what are some of the national security threats over the next four years and n

thy servant barack obama the 44th president of these united states, his family, and his administration. >> today i say to you that the challenges we face are real. they are serious and they are many. they will not be met easily, or in a short span of time. but know this, america, they will be met. on this day we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose, over conflict and discord. on this day we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations, and worn-out dogmas that for far too long have strangled our politics. we remain a young nation, but in the words of scripture the time has come to set aside childish things. the time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit, to choose our better history, to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea passed on from generation, to generation. the god given promise that all are equal. all are free and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness.

face. >> and why not today. >> it's the effect of joe biden's remarks on this administration. they were an odd couple. he was the hot to barack obama's cool. >> he was the punch line for a lot of late-night monologues. if anything, joe biden has emerged in this administration has a key player and indispensable player in dealing with the congress and the political part of politics, the people part of politics which the president does not spend a lot of time, effort, or energy on. >> do you agree with that. >> if you look at the deal with congress, they tried every other relationship, the obama, the reed-mcconnell relationship but it was the biden relationship that set it off. he know he how to run a meeting. he runs through them. that's how you run a meeting. he know he how to do that. >> recently the president at a press conference had to say i'm a friendly guy, i'm a people guy, but joe biden really is that. >> joe biden is. and joe biden's excesses of being a people person and gregarious and enormously approachable, have been very important to this administration and to what david poi

, and the administration lost that. the question about how much obama will get behind that. he did not mention it yesterday in his speech. he talked about climate change and suggested going in the opposite direction. the next four years may be a tough one for energy producers. guest: shall pass has become so plentiful and prices of it -- natural gas has become so plentiful and prices of it has come down so much it is changing the economics of the industry, which plays into the question of climate change policy. to the degree that natural gas which is cleaner than cold begins to replace coal as a primary fuel for power plants, that reduces carbon emissions. all of these things are sort of working together. the administration keeps pointing out that will and gas production is higher than it has ever been, and that is true as the economy comes back. there is an inherent tension between some of this energy policy and job policy. that is one of the reasons why obama takes every opportunity he can to point out this clean energy proposal, because don't wait politically that the white house sees an opportunity to
